Well, I have a girl and she potty trained later than some boys I know so I think it's really just the individual. She's 5 years old now too and she still puts her underpants and shirts on backwards sometimes. I think it's just when they are ready, they are ready, whether it be boys or girls Shrug

girls are supposed to mature quicker than boys.

Joseph was potty trained in 3 days at 25mths and we have never looked back. Night time training is still on going but it is the only thing he has been slower at.

I think each child is different and the develop at their own stage and pace.

I'm not sure yet, Charlotte was 2yrs 4 months when she trained, George is 2yrs 1 month and he knows when he is weeing and pooing and when he's dirty but wont train as yet. We keep trying to get him more familiar with the potty but he is frightened of it so we keep leaving it. (In fact tpday is another 'try' day, he loves wearing his underpants Love )

Charlotte was more advanced in talking, by the age George is now, she could have a full conversation with us, George can't but I think its the way he's made LOL, he trys his best but he seems to be still getting the hang of the sounds of words Smile

Like Aaralyn, Tammy, Charlotte has come down with her T-shirt on back-to-front this morning LOL but she can dress herself and choose her own clothes, but George also likes to help pick out clothes and can put his arms through his tops himself and put his legs in the holes in his pants.

Hi...
I also got a daughter and a son. To me... there is no difference both on them. I used potty and they took one week to fully get familiar on how to sit on the potty.
